Champions of Change
After evacuating her home during Hurricane Sandy, fourteen-year-old Rockaway resident Ariel Creamer founded the organization Survivors Silver Lining, which matches donors with Hurricane Sandy survivors. The mission of the organization is to help children and families replace items lost in the storm and rebuild their lives. Ariel has worked with other hurricane relief organizations to bring and distribute much needed supplies to the Rockaways. Her hope is to continue her work and to bring awareness that the need in Rockaway is far from over.
